Conjuring the noise, smoke and horror of 18th-century naval warfare, Sam Willis tells the story of the epic battle of the Glorious First of June, fought between Britain and France in the mid-Atlantic in 1794. He also places this vast fleet battle in the context of the Terror, the survival of the French Revolution and the development of both British and French sea power in this critical period before the rise of Napoleon and Nelson.
